NEW YORK (United States)- The works of the 77th UN General Assembly are going on with the holding of several high-level meetings attended by the minister of Foreign Affairs and National Community Abroad, Ramtane Lamamra.
The discussions held by Lamamra during those meetings showed foreign partners’ great consideration for Algeria’s key role at both Arab and international levels, under the leadership of President of the Republic Abdelmadjid Tebboune.
In this respect, Lamamra, who represented Algeria at the ministerial meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), called for strengthening the role of the movement amid the growing tensions worldwide.
He recalled President Tebboune’s proposals for a “collective effort to create the appropriate conditions allowing the movement to contribute to de-escalation while promoting balanced, peaceful and cordial relations among the nations on the basis of the ideals and principles enshrined in the United Nations Charter.”
Concerns over international tensions generated by the Ukrainian crisis were also tackled during the ministerial meeting of the Group of Friends of Mediation, co-chaired by Turkey and Finland.
Lamamra, in an address to his counterparts of the member countries, stressed the rich history of Algerian diplomacy in terms of mediation and peaceful settlement of conflicts.
He cited, for instance, the Agreement of Peace and Reconciliation in Mali, the outcome of Algiers process.
